This probably will be the most simple cutting board ever posted here. But so many of those beautiful cutting boards end up being used as decoration and never cut on. This little board from one piece of walnut gets a lot of use. How many times do you just need a small board to cut a lemon or one onion? This one is easy to handle and wash and is the one that gets almost daily use. Finish was mineral oil. The sandwich is KC corn beef on rye. Bon appetit!

There is nothing like a simple project that you can finish in a small amount of time and when you can use it on a regular basis that makes it just that much better. We do what we do because we enjoy what we do.

well done ,
i think you are right about the exotic boards sometimes ,
sometimes we just make things to see if we can .
and being on LJ’s sure brings that forward !

thanks !

Hey steve
I wasn’t the only one looking at that great sandwich.
This is one of your most simple projects Randy,but it is still a very nice board and nice design.

I always make my boards for everyday use , but my customers have different ideas : )
Your board is awesome and I bet you could sell them all day , every day : ) My favorite little board is only about 7” square with a hanging hole in it and I use it the most out of all of my boards.

Yup , I forgot to mention the quality of your photos last night… Very professional . They look like they could be an ad for selling your boards : )

Thanks all for such nice comments. I had thought about trying to make such cutting boards from various local woods and now I wonder about hooking up with a tree trimmer and take lumber made from the tree cut from a person’s yard and turning it into a cutting board to sell to them for a memento of the tree. I assume all hard woods would work at this small of a scale.

Yes as long as you can wait for them to dry properly…...takes about a year per inch of thickness if you air-dry it

Thanks Dusty56 for that info. These boards are less than a half inch thick.
